The Letter ‘J’ Mixtape.

with one comment

For a split second I very nearly omitted Joy Division from the final ten, but then I realised a lot of people may lynch me for axing them. The Letter J mixtape, a mix of songs that make me feel woefully sad and melancholy. The type of mood where you want to sit moodily under a tree in Hampstead, dressed like Catherine from Wuthering Heights and drink cheap rum alone (Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley). To tracks that never fail to make me think the world is a wonderful, amazing place and put me in the greatest of untouchable moods. The tracks that make me want to dance on tables, embrace the unknown and not go home until the morning (Janelle Monae, and the utterly ridiculous John Otway).

You can play my letter J mixtape on Spotify or YouTube. ♥

  1. Ah Joni made it in. I lost my heart to her so long ago that I can’t imagine my life without her music in it.
